Biblical reasons we don’t get healed
I don’t believe that healing is withheld from a person for many of the reasons that many Christians believe. Jesus walked up to people who were totally undeserving of a healing and blessed them with it yet today we feel that we aren’t healed because of some hidden unconfessed sin in our lives. It’s just ridiculous the rules and laws that we burden people with and it’s those rules that kill the person’s faith to receive from God. Let’s take a look at some of the REAL reasons why we might not receive our healing.
You’ve disqualified yourself!
This is absolutely rapid in western Christians because of all the religion they’ve been fed in their lifetime. I have minister friends who go to 3rd world countries and see people coming out of wheel chairs right and left, but getting a supernatural miracle to manifest here in the United States is like pulling teeth. If you believe that your worthiness to receive from God is based upon your performance, then you are living under the law and Christ died in vain for you.
Galatians 2:21, “I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.”
Try to picture yourself being healed, and then listen carefully to your heart for “the reason why you won’t be healed” and if you are reminded of your past failures, you need to seek out emotional healing and get that guilt and shame resolved so that your physical healing can manifest. The best emotional healing ministry style I’ve ever seen can be found in my teaching Holy Spirit Counselor.
It’s not a sickness, it’s a demon!
What do you think would have happened if Jesus prayed for a healing of the boy with the deaf and dumb spirit in Mark 9:25? Would have the boy received what he needed that day? Of course not! Yet many sicknesses today are caused by spirits of infirmities. A friend of mine who has performed many thousands of exorcisms, while he claims not to be gifted in the area of physical healing, he has seen every sickness imaginable healed after performing an exorcism. Anybody I’ve ever known who has experience in the deliverance ministry, will tell you that physical infirmities are one of the characteristics of having a demon, and it’s one of the things that makes this type of ministry so important in the church today.
You don’t understand the New Covenant!
God tells us that His people are destroyed by lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6), and there’s no better example than Christians today failing to receive what all Jesus purchased for them because they are clueless as to what all is in the New Covenant. We cannot have true Biblical faith for something that we cannot prove in the Bible, so if you don’t know what is yours, you cannot have faith for it, and without faith, good luck receiving anything from God.
Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
You don’t know the heart of God!
Yet another big reason why many fail to be healed today. You can’t really have faith to receive something, if you don’t really know His heart toward you. I like how Joseph Prince preached one time that “Good things happen to those who believe God loves them” and it is so true. It’s easy to have faith that a loving parent or friend would loan you $100, but what is your faith level when you walk up to a complete stranger and ask them to loan you the same $100? If you know the person’s heart, your ability to believe them for something changes drastically. God’s Word makes it clear that we cannot be filled with all the fullness of God without knowing the depths of His love.
Ephesians 3:17-19, “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”
“Stop disqualifying those whom I have qualified”
I love how Joseph Prince used to preach a list of things that blocked the people’s healing, until one day the Holy Spirit rebuked him saying, “Stop disqualifying those whom I have qualified!” He went before his congregation and told them he was wrong, and that they are qualified to be healed because of the Blood of Christ. The result was healings breaking out all over their church!! It’s time we learn of the REAL reasons why we aren’t being healed!
Sadly, many of the reasons the church will give you are in fact disqualifying and killing of your faith, and aren’t at all what’s really stopping you from being healed.
